I prefer the ones that are black and tan with the blanket back.

I like blanket backs more than saddle backs. The more black, the better!

Agreeded the darker and more black markings the better, makes them look more primitive IMO

Personally if I had to pick I'd choose saddle back over blanket

How cute! but I would like a blanket back over a saddle back any day . Not that I have one now, it's black, sable and bi color. But then again I love my horses too and none of them is my dream color or they would be a bay ...

I've had and currently have blanket backs, but I've always love a saddle back black and red. Saddle back reds are what I have always envisioned the GSD breed is supposed to look like, and I've always dreamed of having one.

Not that I don't think my blanket back looks great, and I've recently became a huge fan of sables.

Before I got a GSD I thought I liked the saddle back best but now that I have a blanket back, I really think that color pattern is more attractive. Go figure.
